Photo of the Day: Tonkatsu Sauce

I found this at the commissary the other day. Yum. As I sit here chatting with my good friend Lisa who I met in Okinawa... I thought this was appropriate. There's so much that we miss about that place and re-hashing all the good memories with her has made us crazy-nostalgic. So here...

This is nothing like the sauce at Tonkatsu Taro, but it's good enough for us now.

I was lucky enough to be able to take some awesome pictures of my fabulous friend Lisa today... so those to come soon!

Photo of the Day: Through-Trey's-Eyes-Fridays

I am sucking up my pride here.

Trey took this one with our Canon point-and-shoot while we were eating at Chili's the other night.

I had turned the flash off and bumped up the ISO (I hate on-camera flash... it's like the devil)...

And with all that, he got this shot. I am gross. But he framed it pretty well and there's little camera-shake... yes, very noisy. But, you know, I kinda like it...

My good friend is on her way from the airport as I type... I can't wait.

More pics to come soon... :)

Photo of the Day: Old School Washer

This gem belongs to my neighbors. I love it. What is it about rust that makes pictures so awesome?!

Very cool.

Speaking of neighbor... if you're interested in purchasing any real estate in the Hampton Roads area, check out her website for some great information! She specializes in our neighborhood, so do you love this area?! Come on and buy a house here!

I would show you a picture of her (and her husband's) gorgeous mugs, but I have no pics of them... ahem. Soon perhaps...

Okay, until tomorrow...

**Biz Update** | Hampton Roads Photographer

Just a few quick things I want to share...

FIRST: Gift Certificates are In!

Don't know what to get that special someone for Valentine's Day? What about that person that is IMPOSSIBLE to shop for... give them a gift certificate for a portrait session!

The best thing about these is that they are completely customizable! They don't come in denominations or anything like that... I will write in exactly what you've purchased for your special someone.

... The Ultimate Portrait Package...
... $50 towards a package...
... A canvas print...

You name it. I'll make it work for you!

SECOND: Package Updates

If you're interested in maternity and/or newborn shoots, please check out my website for some updated package options!!! Now, you get more bang for the buck!

LASTLY: Pictures on my WALL!!!

I mentioned previously that I was waiting on some prints to come in... well... they're here! And I am in heaven.

I love standouts. These are 3/4 inch standouts and they are perfection.

I think it probably helps that my boys make me smile. All the time. Every time.

My huge canvas should be here soon toooooo!! Eeeee!!

Until next time,

Photo of the Day: Two Today...Cookies and Face Art

Trey has been asking if we could make a treat to bring to his class...My first reaction... um... no?

Apparantly some of the kids have brought little treats for the class on their birthdays and since Trey's birthday is during the holidays we kind-of missed that boat. Initially, I shrugged it off. No big deal. Treats-shmeats.

Then, DJ tells me that Trey mentioned it again and said... "Dad, I just don't want to be left out..." Ugh. Straight to the heart. My sweet little boy.

So what do I do? I make every attempt to over-achieve. This is how I roll folks. Do you see why school was so stressful for me?!

I won't even begin to tell you the PROCESS that we undertook to get to this final product... let's just say it took all day...there was sugar and dough and other random ingredients flung about my kitchen... and I basically ate my weight in sugar. Yay for class treats! *Twitch* *Twitch*

Trey helped decorate the cookies and had SO much fun. But the best part, I think he's PROUD to be taking these to school tomorrow. That's all I need.

Now onto the second photo of the day. My second son has so much personality he's practically overflowing... he is full of energy and spunk and attitude and makes me laugh, scream, and want to fall on the floor EVERY day. So this....

... is just par for the course. Pen. on. the. face.

Whew. I will sleep well tonight.

Next... some biz stuff.

Photo of the Day: Backdrop! Well, Noah too..

I finally got around to making that DIY backdrop I've been wanting...!

Okay. So maybe I finally got around to watching DJ make that backdrop I've been wanting... yay for PVC pipe and my husband! I didn't get a great picture with it b/c Noah isn't exactly what you'd call cooperative these days. But I got him to sit still for about .5 seconds only after I gave him DJ's cell phone. So after how knows how much $$ in phone internet charges later... this is what I've got... and it's not much. More with that soon... I really put it together for a project I've got in mind :)

Tomorrow... my misadventures in being a crafty-Martha-Stewart-wannabe.

Photo of the Day: Murasaki Mura

Sometimes it's good to go back through your old files and see what's lurking there. For me, each second I spend in photoshop, each shoot I go on, each time I meet with another photographer, I learn something new. And I find myself looking at all my old pictures with a fresh eye.

So I went back through some older stuff... and found this gem.

I took this picture on my first outing with my friend Aviva. I remember being so nervous b/c I didn't know squat about what I was doing and she was good... really good. She even let me shoot with her 5D, which is the camera that I covet.

I can't believe this was hidden away in that file. I love this picture and will probably have it printed on canvas to display in my living room.

Until next time,

Photo of the Day: Power Tools Baby...

We've got new shelving in two rooms, just put up a coat rack, and I finally got around to getting the stuff together for my backdrop (like a do-it-yourself backdrop holder thingy) plus loads of new pics coming for the walls (UPS tracker says they'll be here Tuesday... I CAN'T WAIT!).... So DJ's been busy. :)

This is a little tribute to his favorite power tool. The drill. The big drill. :)

Have a good week folks!
